The Lost Leaf Love

It means so much the support and love we have received throughout our 14 years.
And it wouldn’t be possible with out community support.
The countless hours of art and music is hard to realize.
Musicians and artists have poured their heart and effort into bringing their visions to light.
Long before Roosevelt Row was the national giant it is today,
there was the Lost Leaf creating patiently in the shadows of its 1912 bungalow.
Through the years we’ve grown with you, and what it means to remain can’t be explained.

Just know that we love Phoenix!
We love Arizona and we are the arts.
We are the music in your head and the love in your soul.

Thank you so much!

To date, we are proud to have paid out from bar sales over $500,000 to musicians and artists.

We have never had a cover charge or taken an art commission from an art sale.

Due to the forced loss of business from the COVID19 out break, we will not be able to re-open without your support!

The Lost Leaf is a creative space where we foster music, art and the
love of life! Most all team members have been with us for over
10 years!

We have never had an investor, but now we need your help!
